To what extent and how do securlets and gatelets track user activity for third-party services.


API Securlets are limited to the information that a SaaS application provides through its API. Some applications provide real-time notifications - the corresponding Securlets can react quickly to those notifications. Some applications accumulate the changes and make those changes available only via periodic polling -  the corresponding securlets thus can provide only a near real-time experience.

Gateway securlets on the other hand do not have any such limitations. Any activity can be tracked with an appropriate signature. Elastica employs machine-learning and data-science algorithms to automate the signature generation and keep the signatures updated.
